Using sliced bread to make a calzone-style creation like a toastie or folded sandwich is a clever and convenient idea! Here's a simple way to create a quick calzone-inspired snack using sliced bread:

Easy Bread Calzone Toastie


Sliced bread (white, whole wheat, or your preferred type)

Pizza sauce or marinara sauce

Shredded mozzarella cheese

Pepperoni slices or other desired pizza toppings (e.g., cooked sausage, vegetables, etc.)

Butter or olive oil (for grilling)


Lay out two slices of bread on a clean surface.

Spread pizza sauce on one side of each slice of bread.

Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce on one slice of bread.

Layer pepperoni slices or your desired pizza toppings over the cheese.

Carefully place the other slice of bread on top of the toppings to create a sandwich.

Lightly butter or brush olive oil on the outside of the sandwich.

Cooking Method:

Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat.

Place the prepared sandwich in the skillet and cook until the bottom side is golden brown and crispy (about 2-3 minutes).

Carefully flip the sandwich using a spatula and cook the other side until golden brown and the cheese is melted (another 2-3 minutes).

Remove the bread calzone toastie from the skillet and let it cool slightly before serving.

Enjoy your bread calzone toastie, a delicious and budget-friendly alternative to traditional calzones! This method allows you to quickly assemble and grill a tasty snack using basic ingredients you likely already have at home. Feel free to customize the fillings to suit your preferences.
